An incident almost hard to believe happened on the bus in Bellflower, CA, when a LA County sheriff’s deputy was caught on a cell phone camera blowing a punch in a girl’s face. What makes it more outrageous is that it is obvious he hit a person with special needs that was struggling to break loose from the grip of the cop and a female deputy as they were trying to make her get off the bus.
When the cop noticed one of the passengers recording the incident, he threatened him with arrest and asked him whether he had any warrants on him. The man recording was Jermaine Greene, a veteran who just came home after 6 years in Iraq and Afghanistan and had a clean record, so the cop couldn’t get an excuse to take him in and make the video disappear.
Thanks to Greene, this incident wasn’t covered up and the video was uploaded on Youtube, getting the public attention.
